I’m a writer and technologist whose work can be found at Buzzfeed Reader, The Point Magazine, and Tin House Online. I was a 2018 BuzzFeed Emerging Writers Fellow, and am currently a University Fellow at Northwestern University’s Litowitz Creative Writing Graduate Program.

Previously, I worked on self-driving cars at Waymo, and on cloud computing laptops, web browsers, and technologies for emerging markets at Google. I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, and am currently based in Chicago.
